    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Florida State going with what I believe to be a never before worn combo: the two tone helmet, black jersey, and garnet pants. I still want to see the black jersey with the normal gold lid and pants.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I’m expecting them one of the next two weeks. Probably UMass. But I totally agree. It’s not like Ohio State or FSU wearing black. It’s one of our two colors. They should be worn once or twice a season. I would support them being the night game set. Also, I would like to see red britches on the road once a year or so.

    MLS Kits 2019

    I think it’s pretty good, but could be better. I don’t like the shape of the crest or the font (it feels very 2000s). It’s definitely an upgrade over the old crest, and I’m glad they continued the use of the lion. Also, is a pentagon historically relevant to Cincinnati? If I were rating them, I would probably put this in the middle tier of MLS crests. Definitely a far cry from the Revs and Dallas (I also put NYRB and RSL in this tier for having terrible branding), but not on the level of what I’d call some of the league’s best: NYC, Toronto, Philly, LAFC, Orlando, etc. It just feels a bit empty right now. Now the next step for them is to nail their kits. Establish an ownable look. Too many teams in this league have bland and generic kits from year to year. I want to see more kits like Atlanta (stripes), NYC (unique colors with contrasting shorts), and the LA Galaxy (sash).

    Looks like this ugly thing (celebrating 150th birthday of college football, supposedly) is coming as a jersey patch nationwide next year. It is proposed to be placed above conference patches, so that will look less than ideal. I’m not a fan because it feels very forced. It’s not like it’s a recognition of the SEC or B1G celebrating 100 years. It’s just for college football in general. https://cfb150.org/news/2018/11/5/cfb150uniformlogo.aspx I’m on board with stuff like this below, where it’s celebrating something tangible, not just the general idea of college football being played.

    MLS Kits 2019

    I’m all in favor of having more diversity of kit design in MLS. Too many bland and solid color looks. The league needs more stripes, sashes, checkers, contrasting sleeves, contrasting shorts, etc.

    Do you have any intel on Atlanta’s new home kit?

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I’m really enjoying the look of this year’s field for Georgia vs Florida. As a Georgia fan, I always pay attention to it as it has changed over the years. To me, this is a good modern take on what I consider the “classic” design. Growing up, I always remembered those white end zones (which at the time, had a more basic font). Of course, they also have the Jaguars yard markers (which funnily enough aren’t used on the uniforms anymore, but have remained on the field). They did this a couple of years ago: In prior years before they used custom wordmarks, they alternated between white backgrounds with team colored text and just plain grass with team colored text. They’ve also done the design with both teams using their home stadium endzone design, which is cool in theory, except I really disliked how the Gators design was in team colors and Georgia’s was basically just white. The SEC Championship has also taken this protocol in recent years and I hope they change it. This was last year at the new stadium: They also did this back in the old Dome: It looked so odd seeing a crimson Alabama endzone and a plain grass colored Gators endzone.
  8. The design is fine. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the design. The black, on the other hand, is so forced and needless. It does not fit in at all and does not look like the Lakers. Also, the white outline on the wordmark really muddies it up. The two colors blend together to make a blob of a script and the numbers look hazy. The color balance is very poor. The white and yellow sets use a purple wordmark which contrasts very clearly against the light yellow and white. While the yellow Lakers script is traditional, I really think a white number would help restore some order to this uniform.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    I see no harm in posting the image. I was just wondering where the image came from since so far all we had seen was a very low-res version.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    What’s the source on the higher resolution leak? All in all, I think it’s quite decent. Probably will be much better than what they currently have. I can dig the light blue if they aren’t going to go with teal. And as much as everyone wants them to use less black, they’ve used it for so long that it’s pretty much their defining color at this point, more so than teal was.

    Better than the mismatching decals, but I’ll always prefer the F logo on the white lids. Still not a fan of that helmet stripe, either.

    2019/20 Soccer Kits

    I’m very disappointed to hear this regarding Barça. Barcelona scraps logo plans https://www.footyheadlines.com/2018/10/barcelona-scraps-logo-plans.html?m=1 This was a fantastic update to a logo that is starting to show its age. They brought it beautifully into the modern era and it could stand the test of time for another 100 years. The loss of the internal black outlines was a big plus, and I was a fan of dropping the text. Not everything needs to be so literal. By dropping FCB, it gave them more room to show off the blaugrana stripes. My only critique, is that the red cross flag doesn’t follow the curvature of the crest. Hopefully this is simply stalling since it’s put to a vote, and they come to their senses and adopt this soon.

    The stripes on the white LSU alternates are one of those quirks that don’t bug me. And when paired with the purple jersey, you’ve actually got a Florida-style striping consistency going on. Only when paired with the white jersey do you notice the inconsistencies. I find that I prefer the white helmet and pants with the different striping pattern while I like the classic stripes better on the white jersey. It’s one of those weird things that I can’t explain. That probably means the white components should only be worn with the purple jersey so that consistency is maintained, but it doesn’t bother me with the all white look. Perhaps because the helmet stripes match the pants stripes, almost like we talk about alternating NFL uniform colors (such as the Packers yellow helmet, green jersey, yellow pants, green socks). The one aspect of LSU’s set that does bother me is the striping on the yellow pants which inexplicably do not match the nearly identical helmet stripes. There’s an extra yellow stripe next to the white stripe.

    Ok, after seeing the LSU helmet paired with the jersey, I’m labeling these as a fail. LSU has had some great alternates over the years. However, this new design feels generic and completely out of left field. The only aspect that vaguely looks like the Tigers is the colors. The uniforms below are all very good alternates. The white helmets and pants are awesome. Wouldn’t want to see them all the time, but I really love that look as a once a year thing (similar to how I feel about Notre Dame’s green set). The gold jersey definitely has a throwback vibe and the Pro Combat is just a slightly different take on the classic look (didn’t love the collar and arm pit panels, but it was nice overall). There is nothing remarkable about this new alternate by comparison.

    Haven’t seen this posted. Not bad by any means, but rather bizarre and feels unneeded for the school. https://www.andthevalleyshook.com/2018/10/15/17980516/are-these-lsus-new-alternate-jerseys

    College Basketball 2018-19

    New uniforms for Georgia. Mostly just a tweak to the side striping which also now has some sublimated pattern.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I noticed it on TV, but wondered if it was perhaps the lighting. Nope. One of the UGA receivers had some kind of malfunction with the G on his collar. It’s a tonal red. Yet you can clearly still see the shape of the G. Not sure what’s going on with it.

    ...all I was saying was that given how low profile Brown football is, I could relate and know how bad the black uniforms were.

    Here are the uniforms you referenced. My dad went to Brown so I know a little bit about the school and football there. This is pretty much the ideal Brown uniform: This is pretty good, too. Silver lid and pants are a must. Brown tops, red accents. It’s not hard.
  20. The Falcons did exactly this two years ago with back to back games in Denver and Seattle. https://247sports.com/nfl/atlanta-falcons/Bolt/Dan-Quinn-makes-decision-not-to-go-back-to-Atlanta-ahead-of-Seahawks-game--48154169/

    Ask and you shall receive! Just needs stripes on the pants.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Anyone else find it odd that this Browns set is basically a recolored version of their old set? Despite the fact that the Color Rush program was launched a full year after the Browns unveiled their current uniforms. There are a few Color Rush sets that make you scratch your head where they are not a recolored version of their normal uniforms or a throwback. The Browns are one. The Falcons are odd because it uses the throwback style but with a bold red color and the modern logos. Similar situation with the Pats. Current font and logos but traditional striping. I would also put the Bengals in this category for using their normal design simply recolored but a plain block font.

    Navy jerseys for Georgia Tech. Supposedly inspired from the 1990 squad. I’m not seeing any similiarities besides the color. These are basically a re-color of the two white sets. The jersey needs some white number outlines to match the helmet and pants. Looks like something Pitt would wear. Not bad, though. adidas has been good for Tech compared to Russell.
  24. I was going to also suggest Atlanta as a candidate for throwbacks, however, this will not be their third home game in a row. Opened at Philly on Thursday night.

    Hadn’t seen this mentioned yet. Purdue wore the school name on the back this past weekend, which should be against NCAA rules. http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/Sept2017Football_FAQ_Uniforms_Messagesv2_20170928.pdf Also, here are the Aggies. I really like this faux mesh look adidas has done for their throwbacks. It even includes the pattern they used on the collar 20 years ago. Looks like the font could do to be a little wider but overall a very nice look. Interesting that adidas put together a throwback of an old Nike look. Also, I find it funny that the conference logo is designed to look the same as it was 20 years ago, except that back then it was for the Big 12, but now it’s the SEC.
